unstar this property answer text <p>The Scottish Government’s decision to pre-announce the rates and thresholds for the land and buildings transactions tax (LBTT) led to changes in the timing of some transactions in Scotland. Specifically, some higher value transactions were brought forward into 2014-15, while some lower value transactions were delayed into 2015-16.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>In their March 2015 ‘Devolved taxes forecast’ publication, the OBR estimated that <em>“This increases UK SDLT receipts under the old system by £11 million in 2014-15 and reduces the LBTT forecast by £20 million in 2015-16”</em>. The treatment of these policy ‘spillover’ effects was considered by the Smith Commission and is now being discussed by the UK Government and Scottish Government as part of the wider fiscal framework discussions.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this

The Government does not expect a large impact on rent levels in Scotland and the UK from this policy, and any impact would be dampened in the short term due to other policy decisions. Therefore the government does not anticipate changes to the overall cost of Housing Benefit as a result.</p><p> </p> more like this
